On the 15th July 1969, Eddy Merckx scored perhaps his greatest triumph. Riding in his debut Tour de France, Merckx - already in yellow - attacked early. He rode for 140km alone through the Pyrenées’ feared ‘Circle of Death’, across the Col de Peyresourde, Col d'Aspin, Col du Tourmalet and the Col d’Aubisque.
He won the stage by an incredible eight minutes, and the era of Merckxissimo was born.
Made in-house in the UK on A2 sized textured craft paper.
